Powerful, compact, light, and superbly styled, these 3LCD laser projectors are bursting with the latest Sony innovations to deliver consistently rich, bright, colorful images. With versatile installation options and reduced maintenance, they’re ideal for projection in mid-size corporate, education, and public environments. The VPL-FHZ85/FHZ80 has already received multiple industry awards.

Bold, rich color, even in brightly lit rooms

Even powerful projectors can suffer from washed-out image colors in strongly lit rooms. Exclusive to Sony, Bright View delivers high-impact images that don’t sacrifice color. Newly improved Reality Creation ensures images, diagrams, and text look clear and sharp, even in bright conditions. Intelligent Settings with Ambiance match projected images with your environment for an enhanced viewing experience: there’s even an ambient light sensor to measure room brightness.

Clearer images and text

Reality Creation uses powerful algorithms that boost image resolution closer to 4K clarity. Reality Text improves visibility of characters; great for conference rooms and classrooms.

Bright, beautiful colors

Bright View is Sony’s unique processing technology that brightens images while maintaining rich color—even in brightly lit business and educational environments.

Enhanced viewing experience

Intelligent Settings with Ambiance uses a built-in light sensor to measure room brightness, automatically adjusting Bright View mode, color gain, and Reality Creation to suit your presentation environment.

Crisp, high-impact images

The use of 4K photos and videos is increasingly common in presentations. While the VPL-FHZ85/80 are WUXGA projectors, they offer a 4K60P input to display images with quality that’s close to true 4K resolution. Reality Creation is Sony’s processing technology that’s been improved for displaying 4K content better, ensuring images look crisper, with a stronger feeling of depth.

Sophisticated design and superior installation flexibility

The light, compact VPL-FHZ85/80 make an elegant addition to any modern work space. Its understated blend-in design features a flat-top surface that minimizes visual impact when the projector is ceiling mounted. Installation is simplified with a choice of optional lenses, while a class-leading lens shift capability overcomes challenges like ceiling obstacles and other AV equipment.

Beautifully slim and stylish

The slim, stylish case design features a flat-top surface that blends in discreetly when the projector is ceiling mounted.

Generous lens shift range

The class-leading vertical +70% lens shift adjustment range offers more installation freedom. A range of lens options suits virtually any room size and throw requirements; the quick-release bayonet simplifies lens exchange.

4K 60P input capable

The projector’s 4K 60P input capability makes life simpler when you’re using the VPL-FHZ85/80 in multi-screen set-ups with other devices like flat-panel sub-screens. Just split the same 4K signal to drive all your displays, with no conversion needed.

Brighter for longer

While other projectors can fade over time, the VPL-FHZ85/80 are engineered to maintain consistent image brightness. An exclusive Intelligent Settings feature automatically monitors real-world usage, optimizing settings to keep images consistently bright. The sealed laser light source and automated filter cleaning system prevent dust build-up, ensuring cool, efficient operation with uncompromised image brightness.
